Abstract

Three hundred and nine children of burns injuries treated over last 10 years (1989-1998) in Kasturba Hospital, Manipal (India) were studied retrospectively and were analysed for incidence, severity, extent, causes, risk factors and overall mortality. Children of age <5 years were affected more than children of age >5 years (76.1 vs. 23.9%). Females were affected more than males (74.1 vs. 25.9%). Most of the children received burn injuries in the range of 0 to 20% BSA (63.1%). Scald (72.5%) followed by flame (22.7%) and electrical burn (3.2%) were most common cause of burn injuries. Overall paediatric burn mortality was 7.4%. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd and ISBI.
